KAL Chat: Flickr Group and Sock Photo

I think to upload the photos you need to have a free Flickr account to sign into. I've had a Flickr account for awhile which allows me to store all my digital pictures online to link to my blog and what not. :)

I'm interested to see Laurel's socks in Knit Picks "Dancing" sock yarn, it's always hard for me to tell how a yarn will work up from a photo of a skein -- and this is one yarn I've looked at a few times with interest! I cheated and started my socks before the Jan 19th kick off date, but they were CTH method in Cascade Sassy Stripes Superwash yarn on a US 1 needle using Magic Loop . They are plain stockinette stitch with just a bit of K2 P2 ribbing at the top of the leg.

I really liked the yarn and know that my local yarn store has some more in a dark blue/maroon stripe that I *need* to go get for myself so that I can start another pair of socks for moi!

Oh my goodness, I thought I was looking at my own legs!!! My very first pair of socks was knitted with yarn that looked just like that! Good job!

Today is my first day on this blog.. hope this old dog can learn new tricks...I've never blogged before!

Hey, I finally figured out how to post photos to the Flickr Group. You have to have your own account and that is where you upload your pics. Then you have to join the CTH Sock KAL group. When you want to post a photo to the group, go to your account, click on the photo to be sent, and there will be a number of options along the top of the photo. The one you want is "Send to Group". Click on that, then click on "CTH Sock KAL" and your photo will go over to the group.
